    Sydney Mike's Note:

    These savory onions are made from a recipe found in the 500 ALL-TIME GREAT RECIPES cookbook. The can easily be made vegetarian by omitting the small amount of ham used.

      Tasty. The only problem with this recipe was the chef making it (yes I admit it the error came in my scraping skills). Vidalia Onions are a must and will cut poaching time down to 15 minutes. Made these yesterday for this evenings dinner and it worked out well. Thanks for the post. Made for 1`2`3` Hits.

      Excellent, Syd! I'm also not a great scraper-outer, but I persevered! My onions were medium sized, might be a bit easier with bigger ones. I omitted the ham, but made to recipe otherwise, we really enjoyed these slightly different vegetables! I would happily serve these to guests, as bluemoon commented, very easy to prepare ahead of time, so a great crowd pleaser! Made for Vegetarian swap#8, March 09

      Oh boy are these tasty! I had a bit of trouble with the out rings of the onions falling off as I tried to dig out the center but I am certain I simply lack the grace and gentleness that it requires. I used cheddar and jack as that is all I had in the house but I think it would be even more lovely with another combination. I also think vidalia or walla walla would be outstanding onions in this dish. The nutmeg adds a nice touch.
